New Single ‘Don’t Change’ by Mi
The challenges and turmoil’s of heartbreak has been Graham’s prime inspiration in recent years. Yet with ‘Don’t Change’, Graham channels that sorrow to express an uplifting message of encouragement to others who are going through similarly troubled times. Spanning a velvety, soulful croon to a striking falsetto, the sheer range of Graham’s vocal gift immediately makes an impression. It’s the perfect adornment to the song’s hybrid of modern pop focus and timeless retro-soul.
“Breakup can be dark or colourful depending on your perspective. The choice is always yours , ‘Don’t Change’ I hope is a colourful moment captured within all the turmoil” explains Graham.
‘Don’t Change’ was recorded in London with producer Paul Herman (Emeli Sandé, Dido, Corinne Bailey Rae), with string arrangements from the renowned Sally Herbert (Mumford & Sons, Ellie Goulding, Florence + The Machine) Expect Graham to share more music from these sessions in the near future.
Graham first discovered his passion for soul music as a kid and has remained utterly committed to developing an artist career ever since. He worked all kinds of jobs, primarily as an IT technician, as he dedicated himself to songwriting and looked for an opportunity in music.
Now things are taking off for Graham, but he still finds songwriting to be an immensely cathartic experience. “Making music is definitely life’s energy for me,” he says. “If I couldn’t do it, I don’t think I’d actually be here right now. One thing that always keeps me going is the melody – even when a song’s about pain and hardship, the melody still always carries some kind of hope. If people can listen to my songs and come away feeling a little uplifted, then I feel like I’ve achieved something meaningful.”
